The Minnesota State Horticultural Society Fall Festival and Flower Show took place last Saturday at the Faith United Methodist Church in St. Anthony, Minnesota.

Hosted by Nancy Cornell, co president of the Spring Valley Garden Club, the event saw 65 gardeners from the ear representing nine different garden clubs, as well as spectators, family and friends of the gardeners, reports the Spring Valley Tribune.

This year's event was titled Autumn Splendor, and showcased a variety of flower arrangements that boasted all of the colors of the season - oranges, vibrant reds and deep yellows.

Susan, an avid gardener, gave a speech about cultivating prairie plants and flowers that are native to Minnesota and surrounding states.

"In designing a prairie garden or incorporating a few prairie plants, one needs to decide how native one wants to go," she told the news source, "considering if growing for flower or seed heads is desired, as well as being aware of the time of year one wants to plant the bloom. I like to mix and mingle prairie plants with my perennials."

Plants that grow in prairies often feature blossoms that are well-suited for a gift bouquet. According to, some of the most beautiful prairie flowers include the prairie blazingstar, the purple coneflower or the milkweed flower.
